FTA outlines Scottish freight obstacles

[ February 5, 2015   //   ]

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) told the Scottish Parliament’s inquiry into freight transport on 4 February that it needed policies and infrastructure investment that recognises the country’s challenges. Head of policy Scotland, Chris MacRae outlined how Scotland’s rail, road, air and sea freight routes to the rest of the UK, to Europe and worldwide should be improved, and identified the main obstacles.
FTA also raised the issue of the serious imbalances in freight traffic flows which inhibits the development of direct services to and from the country.
